J15 Class 0-6-0, later renumbered 5391. Built in 1890 this became a late survivor not being withdrawn until 12/1958 as No 65391. It is one of the five J15s fitted in 1934-5 with new cabs with single side windows fitted. These were to provide protection for the enginemen when operating on the Brightlingsea branch and the Colne Valley line which lacked turntables. These locomotives also had vacuum ejectors, steam heating, and balanced wheels. Back cabs were also fitted to the tenders for running tender-first.
